Demons-Who-Walk

***SUNDAY LOTFP DO NOT READ***

LotFP players are currently in Cthulhu-Western land. Guns are listed at the bottom.

DEMONS-WHO-WALK

4 HD 
AC 14 
MORALE 12
1 ATTACK - AS WEAPON plus HEXED ROUNDS.
2d4 APPEARING

Men with smiles like rigor mortis rictus. Beneath the hat a hole in the forehead, bleeding. Inside is just the blackness. The speak slow, deliberate. They stalk the wastes and kill.

Whenever a 6 is rolled on any of the damage dice, roll on the Hexed Round chart.

d4
Hexed Round Effect
1
Visions of Beyond. Save vs Paralyze or stunned for 1d2 rounds, consciousness blotted out by the sights.
2
Creeping Tendrils Black. Save vs Poison or -2 to hit as something crawls and constricts under your skin.
3
A Bullet that Slithers. A venomous snake slips from the wound and flees.
4
Possession. Make a choice:
·         Spend 3 rounds expunging it. Drive it out.
·         Ignore it. Let it grow. You’re imagining things.

These firearms (bar the shotgun) ignore physical armour. They have standard range penalties, barring the shotgun. Use the light crossbow for the ranges, except long is <200'.
  • Revolvers hold 5 or 6 bullets, taking 2 rounds to reload. They can be fired a second time at a -2 penalty for small bore, -4 for heavy. Revolvers can be reloaded with a single bullet and fired at the above penalties.
  • Lever action rifles can be fired a second time at a -2 penalty. They hold 8 bullets. They take 2 rounds to reload. 
  • Bolt action rifles hold 5 bullets. They take 1 round to reload. A single bullet can be loaded and fired at a -2 penalty.
  • Shotguns are single or double barrelled. The damage decreases at range, but does not take penalties. It takes 1 round to reload one or both barrels. Both barrels can be fired for double damage at -4 to hit.

Small-bore Revolver - 1d8
Heavy Revolver - 1d10
Rifle - 2d8
Shotgun - 3d6/2d6/1d4

  1. Did you create all that yourself? Sounds awesome. Are there any official LotFP Cthulhu western rules or setting material? Love the picture, too. Where is it from?

    BTW, I'd change that sentence to read: They speak slow and deliberate, stalking the wastes, killing.

    1. To my knowledge, there's nothing offical, although I think I saw another blogger talking about his conversion attempts? Mine is just trying to emulate the CoC game I ran over last summer within the LotFP ruleset.

      Everything above was written by myself.

      No idea on the picture, long has it dwelt in the inspiration folder.

      The sentence was originally a typo, but I could hear the narrator saying it like that, so no adjustment was made.

      Thanks for the comment, compliment and questions.

  2. I'm the other blogger that tried to do a conversion because my friend mentioned she wanted to run Death Frost Doom in the old west.

    I love what you did here!
